A great motherhood as archetype that, taking inspiration from antiquity, a presents itself as the new object of worship.
The photographic portrait in black and white of a transgender woman with a child, represents a ‘new icon’ in which the two figures are intertwined in an intense embrace, isolated on a background of copper-colored foil. The work creates a dialogue with the observer, questioning them on the topic of motherhood and the role of women in contemporary society. It’s an invitation to reflect on the limits of contemporary culture and on the social and religious stereotypes, since gender identity does not have to match biological sex.
